The new Ikeja Bus Terminal, unarguably, is the most ultra-modern bus terminal in Nigeria.

This new transport infrastructure demonstrates yet another brilliance of the Ambode administration.

The Lagos State government developed the Ikeja Bus Terminal as part of the infrastructures for the Lagos Bus Reforms Project.



Upon commissioning, the bus terminus will serve as the hub of all transport activities within the Ikeja Zone.

The Ikeja Bus Terminal was designed to serve over 50,000 passengers daily and providing access to many destinations including Ojota, Oshodi, Maryland, Obalende, Agege, Ogba, CMS, Iyana-Ipaja, etc.



The Ikeja Bus Terminal features facilities befitting of a modern bus terminus. These facilities include Waiting Areas, Ticketing Booth, Loading Bays, Information Centre, Food Court, Taxi Rank, Passenger Convenience, Operations Control Centre and an ATM Gallery amongst many others.

Nigeria’s president, Mohammadu Buhari, is expected to do the official commissioning of the Ikeja bus terminal tomorrow.

So, considering that the land that this bus terminal belongs to the state government, if you were to quote as a contractor to build this imposing and impressive infrastructure, how much would you quote to build it?

Do you know what I am bothered about? shocked The ability of the state govt and its agencies, to sustain and maintain this terminal over a long period of time, to the high standards of cleanliness and functionality, shown here. undecided

Such an edifice would soon be launched with fanfare, and even fancier speeches. sad In 9 months, it would take the grace of God to meet this same terminal, in this pristine state. It is likely to have been defaced, distorted and riddled with all kinds of nauseating activities, that are capable of ruining the purpose it was originally set out to achieve. We need to put more effort into sustaining such projects or terminals, for good optimum performance. undecided

I must say this is a beautiful project. I hope the can maintain it.

Now, to answer your question. Well, as for me, and looking at the photos, all I see are the building and interlocking tiles.

So, the main cost will be on the building and the interiors. If I was to quote to build this bus terminal, I will quote N100million.

However, any government contractor that wish to win such a contract should also include in his quotes monies for kickbacks and bribes.

So, at the end of the day, such a project might turn out to cost tax payers about N5billion.

This is the very sad reality in Naija.

Okay,

Can anyone please direct me to the Tender Advert by the Lagos State Public Procurement Agency in respect of this project as required (advertisement in daily newspapers) by the procurement law?

Can anyone direct me to the evaluation of the tender documents?

Does anyone know HOW MUCH this facility cost Lagos State Tax Payers?

But Buhari is coming to commission it and legitimise the fraud ba?

Why is that not surprising! Maybe he has seen the procurement documents....

Fraud = fraud

You have said it all. I wish the government could make the cost of such projects public. At least for accountability sake. Often, we are so caught up in the euphoria of commissioning a project that we dont bother to ask questions like how much was spent on the project being commissioned.


I hope Ambode would come out and announce tomorrow how much this project costs the tax payers.
